3 Normative Relationship Between Functions and Solutions That Perform Them DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAST DIAGRAMS AND FAST MODELS 21 scientific and engineering know-how in a systematic way and in an approach that can be tested and checked for errors. Many designers will tell you that they “do” function analysis and don’t need FAST models, and in many cases they may be right. However, they do not reveal their intentions explicitly in a systematic way and in a way that other disciplines can engage with and so contribute to the design theories; the team’s potential is therefore reduced to following the dictates of one person.

This realization that a product is simply a function carrier or function enabler was at the heart of what would later become an innovation methodology called value analysis. In an interview, Miles was asked to summarize the emerging value methodology. Miles described his process as “clearcut thinking” that starts by gathering knowledge. ”3 Miles wanted to get more knowledge, pieced together in some logical fashion, than that “scattered around” randomly. This knowledge included function knowledge and having a clear understanding of what the customer wanted done.

In the final chapter, Chapter 8, we discuss OUTLINE OF THIS BOOK 25 how a FAST model can be used to provide competitive advantage to an organization and the projects that it runs. The chapters are written as stand-alone units, so if you prefer to dip in and out, that will be fine. However, our intention in writing the book was to develop a structured learning process, with later chapters requiring knowledge of what was discussed in earlier chapters. Reading from Chapter 1 through to the end will help in understanding and applying the techniques more effectively.
